A little English soccer action kicks off our day once again with Cheltenham at Hartlepool, with the home team favored to win outright. Starting off our evening, the CFL takes center stage. Toronto (-2.5) hosts Winnipeg on ESPN360. On ESPN at 7:05 p.m. The first-place Rays try to extend their lead in the AL East going up against the Yankees in New York. Will the Yanks pack it in or fight until the very end? Vegas has the Rays in this one but the Yankees have a winning record against the Rays this season. Also, the Cubs-Astros game has been postponed thanks to Hurricane Ike, therefore this matchup is unavailable to pick. MLB lines for the night: Pirates -119, Dodgers -124 and A's -123.
#13 Kansas at #19 South Florida
The Jayhawks travel to South Florida to take on the Bulls in a straight up matchup, with South Florida favored by 3.5. Can the Jayhawks prove that last year wasn't a fluke? Or will South Florida save the Big East's reputation as a legitimate football conference? Tune into ESPN2 at 8:00 p.m. to find out.
Yesterday's Notes: North Carolina did some major damage to our scoreboard last night, with wins in both matchups on the board (Win & less turnovers). The overall winning PCT was 49.1%, not bad for Streakers but could this be a start to a big slide? The top streak breaker was obviously Rutgers who got demolished by the Tar Heels. We have a new record holder on our leaderboard, Doghawks now has 16 wins in a row!
